Business regulations, economy top concerns for members of the C-suite


Top-level executives have many worries, but some of their most pressing issues these days are the economy and business regulations. According to Mesirow Financial Consulting's survey of more than 400 members of the C-suite, nearly 28 percent said better regulations are needed in the finance sector.

MFC's "What's Keeping You Up at Night?" survey also found nearly 47 percent of respondents believe the overall business climate is poor, while just less than 39 percent say the environment is fair, leaving much to be desired by C-suite executives.

"Macro-economic, micro-economic, regulatory and political uncertainty are taking a toll on our economy," said Jack Williams, senior managing director at Mesirow Financial Consulting and national co-leader of the firm's litigation, investigative and intelligence services practice. "The more uncertainty there is, the fewer risks businesses are likely to take."

However, some rules and regulations are good for businesses, the survey found. Nearly 14 percent of respondents said regulations keep poorly-managed businesses out of the market.

Regulations will always be a concern of many C-suite executives, but one way they can protect their businesses in the event of unfair regulations is with adequate proper business insurance policies.
